Plot Summary

Following his acclaimed debut, Shotgun Stories, writer/director Jeff Nichols reteams with actor Michael Shannon to create a haunting tale that will creep under your skin and expose your darkest fears. Curtis LaForche lives in a small town in Ohio with his wife, Samantha, and daughter, Hannah, a six-year-old deaf girl. When Curtis begins to have terrifying dreams, he keeps the visions to himself, channeling his anxiety into obsessively building a storm shelter in his backyard. His seemingly inexplicable behavior concerns and confounds those closest to him, but the resulting strain on his marriage and tension within his community can’t compare with Curtis’s privately held fear of what his dreams may truly signify. Take Shelter features fully realized characters crumbling under the weight of real-life problems. Using tone and atmosphere to chilling effect, Nichols crafts a powerful psychological thriller that is a disturbing tale for our times.

Customer Reviews

Close to perfection

Americana through the way of the Gothic.

2 hours?!

We watched this film over 2 nights as it was 2 hours long. For 1 hour and 45 minutes the movie trudged along at the same pace setting the scene (my husband fell asleep twice).

While it's a film that leaves an impression (!), it could have been more entertaining, at least half an hour shorter and not leave you basically bored waiting for 1 minute of resolution.


The worst movie ever

DO NOT WATCH soooo boring do not watch u will die of boredom!!!!
